So there are going to be some extra goodies on our end of Summer getaway this year.
- When you live where I do, end of Summer has to odd meaning.
Traditionally, end of Summer is when the kids go back to school at the end of October or after Labor Day. And in many parts of the country, that’s when the heat starts to let up a bit as well. That’s not the case where my buddy and I live. My great friend and I have the A/C jamming entirely through most if not all of October. Plus, my buddy and I don’t have kids so end of Summer getaway for us comes the first week of October. And it’s regularly such a great time for us. My great friend and I travel north for a afternoon’s drive to a nifty spot in the mountains where my buddy and I care about perfect weather on a beautiful lake. There is also golf plus some of the best diners I’ve ever loved in my life. But this year, we’re going to be having some extras because we’re about to save some severe money on our A/C bill. Where my buddy and I live, one is regularly on top of saving as much as possible on the A/C costs. That means sealing up the house, pulling the curtains plus keeping the thermostat near or above 77 during the peak heating hours of the afternoon. But the Heating plus A/C professionals just installed a smart thermostat last month. My great friend and I only have July to go by however my buddy and I are already saving more than 20 percent on cooling costs over last year. So I’ll be getting the entirely great bottle of Scotch to take with us to the mountains, then or I might even make it two with the savings from the smart thermostat.
